Speeding drivers ignoring 50km/hour speed signs have prompted a Birchwood Lane resident to plead for them to slow down.
“I am so fed up with cars speeding down our road despite the 50 speed limit sign,” said Elisabetta Premoli.
“I am concerned for the many children walking/biking to school as well as the rest of the community.”
Birchwood Lane has recently been completed as a through-road between Newell and Devine Roads. It is set to be busier when it becomes an important connector road with Cherry Lane when the Waikato Expressway is completed.
Premoli wondered what else she could do – other than noting number plates of speedsters – to get the message across to drivers.
To raise issues of community concern, residents can report them to Tamahere’s Waikato District councillor Aksel Bech, (Aksel.Bech@waidc.govt.nz), or the Tamahere Community Committee (email@example.com), or members of the committee (see contacts here).
They can also be reported directly to the Waikato District Council (see here).
In an emergency (fire, police, ambulance) dial 111.
